Default Does anyone make a straight thermostat housing?

I'm swapping an SVX motor into a sandrail and I need a thrmostat housing so that I can run the hose straight out (the SVX thermostat sits vertically, facing out.)

Not exactly what you asked but have you looked at the normally aspirated water pumps? They orientate the thermostat so its horizontal. The SVX pump is similar to a turbo water pump.

I found a picture of a stock SVX water pump, it looks like someone put a turbo water pump on here, where as the factory SVX faces down (I believe).

That is definitely an option, I guess it all depends on how we end up running the coolant pipes to the radiator.

I may have to make a housing....

IIRC the old housings were metal. You could always take one of them and cut / weld it the way you like

Good to know that my guess about the turbo pump ending up being right. All of my flat six experience comes from the ER27 then directly to the EZ30 so yours is still a mystery to me.

yeah, the guy that owned it did, used one from a honda or something real common, let me text him. Just went down to the autoparts store and started checking boxes.


He thinks it was a chevy, got it at checker auto (shucks kragen o'reilly) off the shelf

I think I remember be surprised that a chevy fit because I thought the size would be different....

Just for future reference, I purchase a 2001 3.0L Subaru thermostat off ebay and it points straight out and fits perfectly.

Looks like you've got some custom fabrication going on there. Is that in your 914?
